(Boston, Mass.) - Low gasoline prices are expected to prompt more Americans to hit the road this summer. 

According to the 2017 Summer Travel Study by Gasbuddy, the current average price for a gallon of regular is the same this week as it was at the start of the year, and that will lead to more road trips.
